From Sketch to Color Art- How an illustration is created

Step 1:
After discussing the concept with the client, I sharpen the ol' #2 pencil and get to work.

Here's a pencil sketch right off the drawing board...


Step 2:
I then scan and e-mail the sketch for approval. If there are any editing requests I modify the sketch and re-send it... Once the sketch is approved, it's time to break out the pen and ink!

after the ink has dried...


Step 3:
After the line art has been completed, it is then reproduced onto 80lb.card stock and hand-watercolored.

... And with a little color!



Just some of the folks who've used my work over the years...
